Inspired by physical theatre, Psychological Gesture and Butoh technique, classical scenes surrender spoken text to the emergence of subtext expressed through dynamic physical gesture: Chekhov's "The Seagull," Wuthering Heights and Shakespeare's "MacBeth." Enriched by photographic imagery and choral movement.
